Mission Vista closed due to COVID-19 By Steve Puterski
OCEANSIDE — The Vista Unified School District Board of Education unanimously agreed to temporarily close Mission Vista High School due to two positive COVID-19 tests. According to an Oct. 26 press release from the district, a second student tested positive, although it was an isolated case and not related to the first case. The board, though, made its decision during its Oct. 27 meeting. According to the release, the parents notified the district their student likely contracted the novel coronavirus while traveling with a club athletic team not associated with the VUSD. Regardless, at least 150 students and staff members were placed into a 14-day quarantine. According to a report by Fox 5, positives COVID-19 tests have been confirmed at Alta Vista High School, Roosevelt Middle School and Mission Meadows and Alamosa Park elementary schools. However, the current changes to the district’s reopening plans will only apply to secondary levels. The first positive test at MVHS led to the quarantining of 130 students and four teachers. VUSD reopened its 28 schools on Oct. 20 after a lengthy board meeting lasting nearly six hours. The board also approved virtual and in-person models during the meeting.

Del Mar reacts to controversial railroad fencing project By Dan Brendel
DEL MAR — Del Mar has asked the North County Transit District (NCTD) preliminarily to consider alternatives to installing fencing along blufftop railroad tracks, which pedestrians have long crossed illegally, sometimes resulting in fatalities. The Del Mar City Council will consider adopting a formal policy stance on the matter at its Nov. 9 meeting. Residents and others frequently walk over the tracks, which carry commuters and freight, as a shortcut from residential cul-de-sacs to seaside bluffs and the beach, despite posted no-trespassing signs. NCTD plans to build a “safety fence” in order “to deter the large number of trespassers, to protect the public from the self-evident dangers,” according to an Aug. 28 legal action NCTD filed with the Surface Transportation Board, a federal agency. “In Del Mar alone, there have been 8 fatalities and 14 incidents from 2014 to the present.” Moreover, “constant trespassing on the bluffs contributes to erosion” and “trespassers lead to potential liability and/or financial risks to NCTD and taxpayers.” In its filing, NCTD seeks preemptive federal authorization to streamline maintenance and so-called bluff stabilization projects, by exempting those projects from certain “incredibly onerous” local and state review processes. Stabilization projects, which NCTD undertakes with SANDAG, another regional agency, include drainage, concrete pilings and retaining walls. NCTD’s filing followed an April 21 letter from the City of Del Mar to the California Coastal Commission, in which Del Mar complained that certain emergency stabilization measures haven’t included sufficient “mitigation for impacts to aesthetics.” The city asked the Commission to ensure “ample community meetings” and “a full

… challenge to this fencing project is forthcoming,” according to the filing. “Railroads … have a reasonable expectation of operating on their property without the presence or interference of unauthorized people.”
NCTD outlined a variety of measures to stem trespassing in an Oct. 9 study, ranging from a 6-foot chain link fence to pole-mounted cameras, lights and speakers. The fence would cost an estimated $2 million. Del Mar “was afforded minimal to no inclusion” in undertaking the study, City Manager C.J. Johnson said in an Oct. 23 letter. She asked about alternatives, including legal “safe crossings.” For instance, San Clemente installed fencing to channel pedestrians to designated track crossings with gates that block passage only when a train passes by, Councilman Dwight Worden told The Coast News. “Installing new crossings is largely outside the purview of NCTD,” according to NCTD’s study. “The [transit] district remains supportive … should the city identify project locations and funding to imple-
ment these city improvements.” Councilmembers offered differing diagnoses and outlooks.

Letters to the Editor
Voter suppression in a democracy: Is this a myth?
oter suppression is a strategy used to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing specific groups of people from voting instead of gaining votes by changing political opinions through persuasion and organizing. The United States has a long history of blocking certain Americans from voting, which began at the founding of this nation when the right to vote in most states was limited to white male property owners. Non-whites, women, and the non-property-owning poor were excluded. After the Civil War, the 15th Amendment gave voting rights to every man in America, regardless of “race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” However, from 1890 forward, former Confederate states amended their state constitutions to disenfranchise black voters, especially during the Jim Crow era, when poll taxes, residency requirements, and literacy and comprehension tests were introduced. However, the Voting
Rights Act of 1965 changed all this. In 2013, the Supreme Court ruled Section 5 of the voting rights act was unenforceable. So, now some states have stricter voter ID laws such as accepting only certain kinds of IDs, requiring certain kinds of documentation to get IDs, and requiring certain kinds of photos, residency requirements and address requirements, “Intention to stay” requirements, restrictions on voter registration drives, elimination of election day voter registration, voter purges (eligible voters are removed from voter rolls improperly), felony disenfranchisement, closing polling stations early resulting in long

lines at voting places. Currently, while our nation is gripped in a pandemic, many Republicans, including President Trump, have stated that absentee ballots invite voter fraud, a claim many argue is not backed by evidence. In addition, we have seen the United States Postmaster General cut deliveries and order removal of mailboxes and sorting machines in areas with predominately black voters with the excuse of cutting labor costs. This is an active sabotage of our democracy by adding barriers for each of our vote to be received, delivered and counted. No, this is not a myth! So, we rise against these barriers and vote to elect leaders who will bring sanity to our nation, protect our civil liberties and the environment. To quote Hamilton X: “Who could envision that 4 years ago that those who sat out numbered a 100 million, a third of us weren’t willing to choose a direction, and 80 thousand voters across three states was all it took to swing the election.” So, VOTE wisely. Narima Lopes Carlsbad
f anyone wanted to pinpoint the last hurrah of the California Republican Party, the focus would have to be on November 1994, when the GOP’s Pete Wilson was reelected governor and the anti-illegal immigrant Proposition 187 passed by a 2-1 vote as a centerpiece of his campaign. Since then, the state GOP has won a top-of-theticket statewide office only once, when Arnold Schwarzenegger became governor in the 2003 recall election that ousted Democrat Gray Davis on the strength of his movie muscleman persona. Most Republicans knew Schwarzenegger could not have won a party primary election because he was insufficiently conservative and interested in climate change. Many called him a “RINO,” Republican in name only, and still do. That means the party is 1-12 in general election races for governor and the U.S. Senate since Wilson’s final triumph. This came about because in the aftermath of Prop. 187 more than 2.5 million Latino California residents who had not previously shown interest in politics became U.S. citizens and registered to vote, almost all as Democrats. They turned California from a “purple” swing state to solid Democratic blue, its 55 electoral votes the firm property of whomever the Democrats nominate for president. Look around America today and you can see similar things happening in former Republican bastions. In every public poll leading up to this fall’s vote, Democrat Joe Biden had a small lead in Arizona, once solid GOP property. Republican Donald Trump held a small edge in the polling average two
california focus thomas d. elias weeks before the vote in Republican-ruled Texas. The two were tied in Georgia polls. And on and on. Across the map, oncefirm GOP territories were being hotly contested, meaning the party could spend less time and money in previous swing states. The only once-solid Democratic state in question appeared to be Minnesota, reeling from protests and riots after the police killing of George Floyd. Even if Democrats should carry none of the new swing states this year, the inroads they’ve made bode poorly for national Republicans. It’s easy to see why this is happening: The national GOP is making the same errors Republicans committed in California, failing to see how demographic changes alter the political landscape. The only way Democrats seemingly can lose the ground they are gaining might be to lean too far left, if they essentially become a radical Bernie Sanders party. Almost all elected Republicans over the last four years became rote followers of Trump, overlooking his many documented falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic, his use of “alternative facts” and his steady stream of insults to Latinos and other minorities. When minorities taken together are rapidly moving toward becoming a national majority — as they already are in California — those insults promise to
have effects similar to the threat Latinos felt from Proposition 187, which aimed to ban the children of undocumented immigrants from public schools and hospital emergency rooms, among other items. Then there’s the California exodus factor. While the numbers moving from here to other states have been widely exaggerated, annual out-migration has numbered in the hundreds of thousands for the last six years. It’s probably no coincidence that states where many ex-Californians landed, like Arizona and Texas, are no longer solidly Republican. California Republicans know how to reverse their political fortunes: Recognize and help fight climate change, ease their opposition to abortion, get on board efforts to ameliorate racial discrimination, back consumer rights. They’ve refused to do any of that. So their numbers in California dropped this year to about half the total of registered Democrats and briefly fell behind the numbers embracing no political party. This has only begun in other states that are now wavering between Trump and Biden. But as Republicans in office there consistently do Trump’s bidding, they imperil both their own political futures and the national prospects of their party. The same kind of change happened here as a backlash to what many immigrants — legal or not — perceived as a major threat to them. It will happen elsewhere, too, if the GOP does not alter some stances in response to the big changes going on across America. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com.

SMUSD faces growing budget deficit ahead of new leadership By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — As school board elections near and the San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) has begun transitioning elementary and middle school students back to in-person learning, the district’s budget deficit is projected to steadily increase over the next few years. In its most recent budget, approved in July, the district projected a roughly 12% budget deficit in fiscal year 2020-21, which is more than $29,000,000. The budget also assumes the district’s projected cuts will be at $14 million for this fiscal
year. By FY 2022-23, SMUSD is expected to face a deficit of about 16%, with anticipated cuts at about $4.5 million. SMUSD’s fiscal future has been shakier since the start of the COVID-19 crisis; however the district has been facing structural deficits since before the outbreak began. The school district, which serves about 21,000 students in North County, narrowly avoided anticipated deficits for their 2018-19 school year, but has showed a steady downward slide since then.
In fact, the district has been projecting a budget deficit since the 2017-2018 adopted budget. Declining enrollment, increased cost of special education and the increased contributions to pensions are all factors that school officials point to as reasons for deficits like these. Unlike other North County school districts including Oceanside and Escondido Union, however, San Marcos saw a steady increase in enrollment before COVID-19. After the start of the COVID-19 crisis, school districts across North County,
including SMUSD, have seen a decrease in enrollment and are all feeling the financial impact. According to state law, if a district remains in a deficit for too long, it may lose the authority to govern itself, and be placed under control of the State Superintendent of Education. To avoid this, SMUSD has had to make steep cuts and, in recent years, the district has even had to dip into its reserves. “Like many other school districts in California, San Marcos Unified will be facing a very challenging financial period
over the next several years. The state revenues that the district depends on are down due to the pandemic and this means no COLA (cost of living adjustment) and possible revenue reductions for the next two years,” said Vincent Christakos, SMUSD’s consulting chief business officer. Christakos added that the district will provide the first Interim Financial report in December, which will include actual revenues and expenses through Oct. 30, 2020, and will be updating the budget for the rest of the 2020-21 fiscal year as well as the multi-
year projections for the next two years. Last month, the district’s superintendent, Dr. Carmen García, abruptly resigned amid increased tensions with the board and the district’s families. The district also has three board seats up for election next week. The new board will be responsible for appointing a new superintendent. The SMUSD community has widely expressed how hopeful they are that new leadership and new representatives will also mean a more stable fiscal future for the district.
MiraCosta premieres socially distant video play By City News Service
OCEANSIDE — The MiraCosta College Theatre Department premiered “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” this week, a free and socially distant video play running through Nov. 8. There will be no stage. Actors won't even be sharing the same set. The audience will be watching from their living rooms. “We decided when we were placed under the stay-at-home order that,
We want children to see that theatre is possible in their own home.” Tracy Williams Director, “Miraculous
even though we were going to be physically distanced, we would remain active and we were going to continue to move forward no matter what,” said Tracy Williams, the play’s director. “We feel that we have been so incredibly blessed by our community, we wanted to give something back; We wanted to pay it forward by providing this gift in return.” Students filmed their scenes individually at home on Zoom using backdrops, set pieces, props and costumes prepared by theatre department students, faculty and professional staff. Theatre department technician Bryon Andersen removed borders from the recorded Zoom boxes before “connecting” the actors, crafting a particular scene to make it appear as though several people are on stage at a time. Whenever a scene in the story grew too large, the crew used shadow puppets to illustrate the action.
“The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” is set in the 1930s and tells the story of a china rabbit given to a young girl named Abilene, who treats him as a member of the family until he falls into the sea and onto the ocean floor while Abilene and her family are vacationing aboard the Queen Mary. Freed from the seabed by a fierce storm, Edward is pulled up by a passing fisherman using a net, the first of several stops with different owners over the next several years of various adventures. Eventually, Edward is reunited with Abilene, who is now married and has a daughter of her own. “When I first read the book last spring, I couldn’t see how this was going to work or how it was going to look at the end,” said film major Beverly Balderrama, who plays the role of the traveler. “It seemed hard to visualize how this was going to work on Zoom. But it’s taking what has been a meeting platform and using it in another way to bring art into our lives.” With pandemic protocols restricting joint rehearsals, props, costumes, and scenery were distributed to the five actors, who live from Temecula to San Diego. With each of the main characters interacting with the Edward Tulane china rabbit, scenic artist Zach Elliott was tasked with crafting five identical dolls. Williams would spend up to five hours on the road driving production material to student actors unable to pick up their costumes, microphones, lighting, and more from the Oceanside Campus Theatre loading dock. “We want children to see that theatre is possible in their own home,” she said. “It also speaks to the heart of who we are as a theatre program and how we think of our students and our community.” Tickets for the show can be found at https:// w w w. s h o w t i x4 u . c o m / event-details/40243.

Carlsbad, Vista school reopenings not without tension By Steve Puterski
REGION — Battle lines have been drawn over when and how two local school districts will reopen. Carlsbad Unified and Vista Unified school districts plan to return, or have already returned, to in-person classes after gaining approval from each board during their meetings on Oct. 14 and 15, respectively. Both meetings showcased heated exchanges between teachers, classified unions, board members and residents over how to return as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. CUSD middle and high school students will return to class on Nov. 30, overruling a previous decision to hold all middle and school classes virtually until January 2021. VUSD began classes on Oct. 20. Also, CUSD Trustee Kathy Rallings, who is employed with the California Teachers Association, has negotiated on behalf of the Vista Teachers Association about reopening plans, according to Scott Davison, who is a member of the
group Families for Opening Carlsbad Schools, and several Vista parents and teachers. “No. In fact, standing up for students, educators and parents are shared community interests,” Rallings said, in response to accusations of a conflict of interest. “We must practice consistency and follow through with agreements and decisions previously reached. “Teachers must be able to trust their leaders to prioritize a safe and healthy return to school and avoid inconsistent or incoherent policies that undermine that trust.” The unions have been vocal in their displeasure with returning to in-person sessions, saying the environment is not safe, social distancing efforts are lacking and exposing staff to potential infection of the novel coronavirus. The VUSD meeting was so contentious, the Vista Teachers Association held a meeting and approved a vote of no confidence against Superintendent
Matt Doyle and trustees Rosemary Smithfield and Cipriano Vargas. According to several sources, the vote failed. Regardless, VTA leaders said the 6-foot distancing cannot be met for students, thus jeopardizing a teacher’s healthy and safety. Smithfield said the district’s plans have been in place for at least two months and the union knew Oct. 20 was the target date to return, should county and state officials allow schools to reopen, which they have. She added the district has given teachers masks, face shields and plexiglass if they want it and the district requires teachers to maintain a 6-foot distance at all times. “I’d say it was a small group of teachers that are not happy,” Smithfield said. “We don’t need to drag students into it. We gave parents a choice and we’ve done everything possible we can.” However, Davison and the group said Rallings is trying to actively sabotage
reopening. He said Rallings may be in violation of the board’s own conflict of interest provision in its bylaws and question whether she has the student’s best interests in mind. Davison and others also question whether Rallings has other individuals’ safety in mind, pointing to comments she’s made over the past several months regarding having remote teachers with campus monitors in the classroom. She chided Trustee Ray Pearson during the Oct. 14 meeting after he posted on Facebook his position stating he was for reopening schools. Rallings said it could be a violation of the board’s governance, although Davison said Rallings posts political positions, such as being a supporter of Prop. 15, on one of her two Facebook accounts. Keri Avila, the VTA president, did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Lindsey Gordon, president of the Carlsbad Unified Teachers Association, declined to comment.

Coronavirus County avoids purple tier again as it records 269 new cases By City News Service
REGION — For yet another week, San Diego County avoided the fate of dropping into the dreaded purple tier of California’s coronavirus monitoring system, with an adjusted case rate of 6.5 new daily COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population. While the county’s unadjusted case rate is 7.4 per 100,000 — enough to be in the most restrictive purple tier, which has a floor of 7 per 100,000 — the high volume of tests the county is able to perform daily allows for an adjustment from the state. This adjustment has kept the county in the red tier for several weeks, saving it from having to shut down nearly all non-essential indoor businesses. The state data, which is updated every Tuesday, reflects the previous week’s case data to determine where counties stand in the state’s four-tiered reopening system. San Diego County did show modest improvement, dropping 0.4 from last week’s unadjusted case rate of 7.8. The testing positivity rate continued an upward trend, rising 0.2% from last week to reach 3.5%, but remains low enough for this metric to remain in the orange tier. If a county reports statistics meeting metrics in a higher tier for two consecutive weeks, it will move into that more restrictive tier for a minimum of three weeks. The state’s health equity metric, which looks at the testing positivity for areas with the lowest healthy conditions, dropped from 5.5% to 5.1% and entered the orange tier. This metric does not move counties backward to more restrictive tiers, but is required to advance. County health officials reported 269 new COVID-19 infections and seven deaths Tuesday, bringing the case total to 55,210 and the death toll to 877. Five men and two women died between Oct. 22 and Oct. 25, with one death oc-

curring July 19. Their ages ranged from early 60s to mid-80s. All had underlying medical conditions. Of the 10,456 tests reported Tuesday, 3% returned positive, bringing the 14-day rolling average percentage of positive cases to 2.7%. The 7-day daily average of tests is 11,173. Two new community outbreaks were confirmed Tuesday, one in a daycare and one in a business. In the past seven days, 24 community outbreaks were confirmed. A community outbreak is defined as three or more COVID-19 cases in a setting and in people of different households over the past 14 days. Of all cases, 3,875 — or 7% — have required hospitalization. And 898 — or 1.6% — of all cases and 23.2% of hospitalized cases had to be admitted to an intensive care unit. All students at San Diego State University, meanwhile, remained under a stay-at-home advisory announced Thursday. The advisory began at 6 p.m. Friday and will run through Nov. 2 at 6 a.m. University officials said the move was made to discourage students from participating in Halloween events where physical distancing cannot be done. Students are advised to stay home unless
they have an essential need. As of Tuesday afternoon, the university has had a total of 1,257 COVID-19 cases since the fall semester began, including 421 among studentsliving on-campus, 807 among students living off-campus, 16 among faculty and staff and 13 among “visitors” — defined as someone who has had exposure with an SDSU-affiliated individual. UC San Diego announced Monday night that, as a result of viral shedding, it had detected COVID-19 in wastewater in the Revelle College area between 11:30 a.m. Saturday and 9:45 a.m. Monday. The virus is shed from the gastrointestinal tract and is present in feces early in the infection. UCSD has the ability to identify the virus in wastewater, even before someone tests positive. The college advised anyone who used the restroom near the Revelle College area between those dates and times to get tested for COVID-19 out of an abundance of caution. Less than a week after fully reopening its schools, the Vista Unified School District reported four additional COVID-19 cases Monday, including two Mission Vista High School students, one Roosevelt Middle School student and one Alamosa Park Elementary School student. On Tuesday, the district confirmed two additional cases — one at Mission Meadows Elementary School and one at Alamosa Park Elementary School. According to the district’s COVID-19 safety dashboard, it has recorded 10 cases since Sept. 8, with six of those coming after Oct. 20. The VUSD Board voted Tuesday to shut down at least one campus for two weeks starting Thursday as a result of the rising cases.

was approved after board members received an update on the county’s efforts on combating the virus. According to the resolution, the county is requesting that “the state continues to regularly consult and incorporate the expertise and judgment of local health officers in the determinations for the most effective nonpharmaceutical interventions in local jurisdictions.” Further, “the state’s reopening blueprint must account for hospital and medical system capacity and readiness to provide medical treatment by incorporating data into the analysis in some manner, such as case rate readjustment factor,” the resolution states. Desmond said county officials should be able to determine measures to contain the virus.
“We continue to be stuck in the red tier, and our businesses continue to suffer,” said Desmond, who has frequently criticized state restrictions under the four-tiered color-coded system, but he also praised the county’s public health staff for their efforts. “I realize we’ve sent letters in the past, but we have to keep knocking until that door opens,” Desmond said, adding that the county has the appropriate testing capacity and personal protection equipment. Dr. Wilma Wooten, county public health officer, updated the board on the county’s case rate, which stands at 54,941. As of Tuesday, there have been 870 deaths from the coronavirus, with 892 in intensive care units and 3,859 hospitalized. The county remains in the red tier, Wooten said, but can progress to less restrictive tiers if residents continue preventive measures, such as masks and social distancing. “Please remember how far we have come, and where we do not want to return,” she said. “We want to avoid moving to tier one, or the purple tier.” Wooten also thanked the public for working to keep the county “healthy, safe and thriving.” Gaspar said the county needs to reopen public youth sporting efforts, as children are suffering from a lack of activities. “Kids have received the least amount of consideration during this pandemic,” Gaspar said, adding the state has been silent on youth sports reopening. She said that families are taking their children to Arizona or Nevada for tournaments, where there are fewer restrictions, but that also carries risk. “It’s preferable to keep them here for play,” Gaspar said. Along with approving the resolution, the board also voted 4-1 to green- light over $30 million for numerous capital improvement projects that were put on hold in May due to the pandemic. Ebony Shelton, deputy chief administrative officer, said county staff recommended allowing the projects to move forward. The funded projects are $16.4 million for the Ramona Intergenerational Community Campus, $6 million for the San Dieguito Local Park, $3.5 million for the parking lot at Mount Woodson, $3 million for the Twin Oaks Local Park, and $3.9 million for 11 parks and two fire authority acquisitions. Citing concerns over the lack of future federal stimulus, Supervisor Nathan Fletcher was the lone no vote. The county has received more than $300 million from the federal CARES Act to help with everything from small business grants to better testing.

Tri-City candidate’s interests, shady tactics raise concerns EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second article in an ongoing investigative series into TriCity Healthcare District candidate Jim Burlew.
In my political career, I have not seen anything that flagrant.”
By Jordan P. Ingram & Catherine Allen
OCEANSIDE — New evidence of a Tri-City Healthcare District board candidate’s business interests and murky campaign tactics continues to raise questions about potential conflicts of interest as the Nov. 3 election draws near. Jim Burlew, who’s running for the board’s District 1 seat, was fired as Tri-City’s facilities director in 2014 for violating the hospital’s nepotism policies. After losing a bid for the hospital’s board in 2018, Burlew’s latest campaign platform relies on unsubstantiated allegations against the hospital. Several of Burlew’s claims have since been debunked by The Coast News. Burlew’s election strategy also includes orchestrating campaigns for board candidates Savannah Strunk, Robert Motsinger and Deborah Sheri Vietor. All of the candidates list Burlew’s website (tricity2020.com) on various online candidate profiles and feature the same laundry list of perceived grievances, including the closure of the hospital’s Behavioral Health Unit under “false pretenses” and missing money from the hospital’s General Fund. “The things that Burlew is talking about are things in the past (from) when he was involved with it,” Tri-City board member and Oceanside mayoral candidate Rocky Chávez said. “And we don't want to go back to the dark days.” According to Burlew’s former hospital coworkers, Tri-City paid Burlew’s inspection company, JB Consulting & Associates, for inspection services of his own work on several projects, a practice condemned by some hospital inspectors as an inherent conflict of interest. Jim Dagostino, a former Tri-City board chair and member of the board’s Finance, Operations and Planning Committee, said many of the projects had “cost overruns” and “problems with finishing on time.” “To me and some of my Board Colleagues it became clear that this job was over Mr. Burlew’s head,” Dagostino said in a written statement to The Coast News. “It is unclear why he was hired by (former CEO Larry) Anderson.” In 2013, Anderson was fired from Tri-City due to alleged unlawful conflicts of interest with Charles Perez, founder of Medical Acquisitions Company, Inc (MAC) regarding the hospital’s medical office building, which resulted in a lawsuit. A Tri-City spokesperson confirmed the litigation remains unsettled — a

potential conflict of interest for Burlew, who has pledged to “stop the ongoing lawsuit that the hospital initiated in an attempt to steal the medical office building from the developer.” Burlew also faced legal trouble with Tri-City shortly after his firing due to his alleged removal of files containing private information of 35,000 patients. Tri-City “incurred thousands of dollars” in damages as a result, according to court documents. Burlew and Anderson have since gone into business together, establishing Nevada-based Healthcare Compliance 365, which may position Burlew and his business interests on both sides of the negotiating table for future hospital contracts.
Past mismanagement Jessica Godfrey, a former staff accountant at Tri-City, recalled frequent problems under Burlew’s direction of the facilities department. “It never failed that it seemed like there was a problem with every project under the direction of Jim Burlew,” Godfrey told The Coast News. “I remember things weren’t inspected correctly and we had to go back and do it over again.” During Burlew’s tenure as facilities director in 2014, the Office of Statewide Health and Planning Development (OSHPD) received an anonymous tip advising that Burlew had replaced ceilings throughout the hospital without the state agency’s knowledge, review or approval — a violation of state health and safety codes. Shortly after Burlew’s firing, the facilities department submitted a new renovation plan to OSHPD, costing the hospital an additional $41,337 in construction services in order to bring the ceilings up to code, according to internal Tri-City documents obtained by The Coast News. In June 2014, the City
of Oceanside slapped TriCity with an administrative citation, issuing a stop work order and temporarily suspending the hospital’s building permit at 4120 Waring Road after Burlew failed to obtain the proper clearance from the San Diego Air Pollution Control District regarding asbestos removal and without approved stormwater erosion or construction waste recycling plans. As a staff accountant, Godfrey was also responsible for analysis of accounts and purchases, including financial transactions for the hospital’s construction projects, which required frequent interactions with Burlew. According to Godfrey, several employees working under Burlew told her that he was “belligerent” and “a bully.” Godfrey recalled a specific incident after Burlew came to the accounting department demanding immediate payment of invoices to his company. “(Burlew) was kind of bullying her into getting these payments,” Godfrey said. “Burlew said, ‘I want these paid. I think it's important we get these paid. It’s in the best interest of the hospital.’” Godfrey later anonymously reported her concerns to the hospital’s administration. “I thought it went against general practices and values of the hospital,” Godfrey said. “We need people working to make the hospital better and not out for their own agenda.”
Shadow campaign Laura Fink, a San Diego-based political analyst and CEO of Rebelle Communications, said Burlew’s alliance with several other board candidates is highly unusual, but may be successful in a low-information race where voters are “less likely to pay attention.” “In my political career, I have not seen anything that flagrant,” Fink said. “It’s machine politics
to an extreme degree, and it's reliant on people not finding out about it.” Motsinger, a certified special project inspector, told The Coast News that Burlew approached him about running for the District 3 seat on Tri-City’s board. “I never thought about the problems until he pointed them out to me,” Motsinger said. “He said, ‘I’ll take care 90% of (the campaign).’ I talk to him
every other day and he tells me what’s going on. For example, the signage, little signs with wires they put in people’s yards. He said, ‘Bob, it’s time to do signs.’” During an interview with The Coast News, Motsinger couldn’t recall the district he was seeking to represent, and further acknowledged he doesn’t know much about his challenger (Gigi Gleason). “The young lady I’m running against is a lifetime volunteer, nice lady, but she’s got zilcho,” Motsinger said. “It’s probably better I don’t know her name. I think somebody told me once. I’m not trying to run against her, I’m just trying to run for the office. She’s probably a real nice person. I think just maybe I might be a bit better.” Motsinger has also proposed for Tri-City to enter into a public-private partnership with Scripps
Health to bring “more services, better healthcare to North County,” a suggestion redoubled by Burlew, Strunk and Vietor. “There is no such partnership or negotiation underway with Scripps Health,” a Scripps Health spokesperson said. “Scripps requested that the campaigns/candidates refrain from making these statements and remove all references to Scripps in campaign materials.” The candidates have since removed the healthcare provider from their campaign statements, according to Scripps Health. However, when residents asked Motsinger about his stance on certain issues on his Facebook page, Burlew, not Motsinger, frequently provided a response, prompting a resident to ask, “Can Robert (Motsinger) not speak for himself?” “Jim Burlew is the leader of the group,” said Colleen O’Harra, a District 1 candidate running against Burlew. “They don't speak for themselves.” Chávez questioned Burlew’s motives for seeking a group takeover of the hospital’s board, predicting that a lot will change “if that slate got in.” “The man should not be allowed to be on the board,” Chávez said. “I hope voters see that.” Burlew did not respond to requests for comment.

Seniors report feeling safer at Silvergate San Marcos than at home SAN MARCOS - October 30, 2020 Seniors who are considering moving to a retirement community may be reluctant to uproot their lives during the middle of a pandemic. However, for residents at Silvergate San Marcos, the protection and security measures afforded by the area’s premier senior living community have instilled a sense of security as they navigate a new normal in retirement living. Seniors Speak About Safety at Silvergate There may be no better time than right now to move to Silvergate, according to Armeline Timperlake, who moved into the community just before the onset of the pandemic. “The biggest thing is that we know we’re safe here,” said Timperlake. “Just knowing that no one is coming in from the outside and that everyone here is well, it gives you a good confident feeling. We make arrangements to meet family outside on the patio for a short period of time to visit and as far as I’m concerned it’s worked out well.” Safe from the virus, resident Irene Grahn believes living at Silvergate has minimized the effects of the pandemic on her life. “If I was living at home, I’d have the problem of trying to get groceries and go to doctors and things like that. You can only bother your friends so much,” said Grahn. “I felt isolated and in need of some help with arranging these things. You feel good because they’re taking your temperature every day and everyone else’s, too. The tables and chairs are all wiped
“As soon as the staff comes around, I know to stick out my finger because I know I’m going to get checked,” said Elsie Rondinelli, Silvergate’s newest resident who moved in with her husband, Naz, during the pandemic in October. “It’ll be nice when this Covid virus is over with, but we’re making the best of it.” “I feel very safe here at Silvergate given all of the protocols,” said Naz Rondinelli. “I kept telling my wife that I couldn’t wait to get here.” “The rules about wearing a mask are very important,” said Charlotte Rowe, who is protected by the community’s stringent protocols. “I feel safe and comfortable here. The Silvergate staff is taking really good care of us.” Elsie and Naz Rondinelli, new residents of the Silvergate San Marcos retirement community down and it’s not hit and miss…everything’s sanitized. You don’t have to worry about things here because everything is handled for you.” Safety Protocols Have Residents Feeling Safe Grahn is not alone in feeling comfortable and safe within the protected environment Silvergate has established since the onset of the pandemic. As residents have experienced the extensive safety precautions and Covid-19 protocols instituted by the community, many have encouraged other seniors to examine their practices at home and compare them to the measures taken by the caregivers and staff at Silvergate.
Resident Videos Online at SilvergateRR.com For seniors who may be concerned about their own safety while sequestered at home during the pandemic, perhaps Silvergate San Marcos offers a better solution. Silvergate has recently posted a series of video testimonials online from many residents describing how safe they feel in the community at SilvergateRR.com.

Blakespear delivers virtual State of the City address By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — In a sign of the times, Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear delivered the first-ever virtual State of the City address on Oct. 27, calling for continued compassion and unity among residents. Set to a backdrop of the continuous pandemic and a chaotic election cycle in which the mayor is seeking another term, Blakespear’s address remained positive, praising the city’s response to COVID in financially assisting businesses and struggling residents, while still advancing the city’s own infrastructure improvements, financial goals, and record of environmental conservation. Hosted by the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce, the annual State of the City event was attended by over 100 virtual attendees and sponsored by 21 local businesses, including The Coast News, and "platinum" sponsors Scripps Health, SDGE and Encinitas 101. The evening included statements from Scripps Health and SDGE, breakaway discussion panels, as well as a virtual drink tutorial prior to the Mayor’s speech. Welcoming council members, city staff, the Chamber and guests, Blakespear highlighted the community’s accomplishments while also acknowledging the challenges fraught by 2020. “While this national crisis has truly upended life as we know it, it has also brought out the best in Encinitans,” Blakespear said, noting the theme for the evening: “In it together.” “Through vibrancy and ingenuity, Encinitas is uniquely our own,” Blakespear said. “Its spirit is

something that I have always cherished, and even more so after having had the privilege of serving as your mayor for nearly four years. “With the insights I’ve gained, I can say that we establish priorities that matter to our residents and businesses, and with determination work to enact positive change.” According to Blakespear, Encinitas ended the 2018-19 fiscal year with a $6.5 million surplus, enabling the city to dedicate $8.2 million to needed capital improvement projects. Furthermore, despite the economic downturn prompted by the pandemic in 2020, the city’s reserves remain at “$15.8 million with no reductions in service delivery to the public.” “Like many cities throughout California, Encinitas is experiencing a decline in revenue due to COVID,” Blakespear said.
“However, due to solid property tax revenue and years of conservative budgeting, we are weathering the storm well.”According to Blakespear, the city’s positive financial health and regional partnerships allowed for a robust response to the negative impacts of Coronavirus, distributing $500,000 in grant funding to 200 small businesses, $110,000 to the three Mainstreet organizations and the Chamber of Commerce, as well as funding 42 families with rental and utility assistance programs aided by assistance from the $1.9 million in CARES Act funding by the state. “When the Governor shut down indoor use for non-essential businesses, we were among the first cities to allow no-fee permits for use of sidewalks and streets for both retail and restaurant use,” Blakespear said. “To date, almost 50 restaurants are now able to
operate in outside cafes.” During 2019 the city also instituted infrastructure improvements including the Coastal Rail Trail, additional bike lanes along Highway 101, as well as improvements to the I-5 corridor among others, with the long-anticipated Leucadia Streetscape Program (link to my recent article) breaking ground in late 2020. According to Blakespear, this amounted to 1,625 feet of sidewalks, 8 crosswalks, 2.8 miles of bike lanes, 8.5 miles of traffic mitigation measures, and 6.5 miles of pavement resurfacing. In regards to Environmental Conservation, the city’s Climate Action Plan was named “Outstanding Planning Document of the Year” for a third time by the California Association of Environmental Professionals. The city also launched it’s Community Choice En-
ergy partnership, working towards 100% renewable energy in Encinitas. In light of civil unrest in June, the city also hosted a public safety forum to discuss policing in Encinitas, working with groups such as Encinitas 4 Equality to
“educate and mobilize the community to work in allyship to support and protect diversity.” Blakespear also spoke about the city’s low-income housing and homelessness initiatives, touting the city’s Accessory Dwelling Unit program, which earned the Helen Putnam Award from the League of California Cities; and the Safe Parking and Opening Doors programs assisting the homeless. “Our proactive approach to protecting public health, our collective desire to be prudent stewards of our environment, our commitment to protecting our City’s finances and character, and our innovative approach to solving our housing challenges is the result of knowledge gained through years of thoughtful community engagement,” Blakespear said, ending the address by thanking the city’s residents and attendees. The full video of Mayor Blakespear’s State of the City address is available online.

No date yet for Harvest Hills vote By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — It’s been almost a year since the Escondido City Council’s last action regarding the controversial Harvest Hills development and, according to city staff, the city still doesn’t have a date for a vote on the issue. The project is a highend sprawl development that proposes developing 550 luxury homes on 1,100 acres of land in the San Pasqual Valley on county property near the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The city would need to annex the land into the municipality’s boundaries as part of the approval. Proposed by Concordia Homes, the development plan has been in the planning process for the past six years and was formerly known as Safari Highlands Ranch before being rebranded as Harvest Hills. Critics of the development say it will endanger wildlife habitats, increase wildfire risk and have negative effects on transit and
climate change. Proponents of the project say that it supports sustainability by being the city’s first-ever carbon neutral, net-zero energy and agri-neighborhood housing community. At its Nov. 20, 2019, meeting, the council voted 4-1 to authorize a $63,470 contract between Concordia Homes and the firm Michael Baker International to continue performing an environmental impact statement for the project. Ahead of that meeting, the council received a joint letter from nearly two dozen environmental, conservation, climate and community organizations urging the council to reject the development. The project was supposed to be presented to the city’s Planning Commission in January or February and then brought to the council for a vote sometime between March and May, according to a timeline released last year by a consultant on the project.
Escondido Communications Manager Teresa Collins told The Coast News that the Harvest Hills item is not on any upcoming agenda, so the city does not have a date for the issue at this time. The city did not indicate why there has been a delay. The city may have been waiting until after the Nov. 3 elections, in which three district seats are up for grabs. The outcome of the election could cause a shift in the council’s political majority for at least the next two years. The new council will also be responsible for hiring a new city manager to replace Jeffrey Epp, who officially retired in July but has stayed on until a replacement is named. Either way, the highly anticipated vote on the largest and most controversial housing development to come before Escondido will fall to the city’s new leaders. The question is when.

SDUHSD pushes back students’ return to campuses to late November By Caitlin Steinberg
REGION — According to the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD), the majority of students and faculty will not return to campuses starting Nov. 9, maintaining online distance curriculum as the district continues to purchase necessary “health and safety items” and establish reopening procedures with faculty. Holding a special meeting on Oct. 28, the SDUHSD Board of Trustees reinstating a limited resolution declaring “emergency conditions” granting Superintendent Dr. Robert Haley limited purchasing powers necessary to acquire reopening materials in agreement with the Board. The resolution and Superintendent’s executive purchasing power will extend until December 31, 2020. The Board had previously granted such authority in March of 2020, however at a recent September meeting, Trustees chose to revoke the State of California’s “emergency conditions,” unaware of possible purchasing consequences.
I want to make sure that as we move forward, we do it in a way that’s sustainable.” Tina Douglas Associate Superintendent
During the Oct. 28 meeting, the board discussed the language of the resolution, debating whether the wording would provide the structure and transparency SDUHSD families have requested. Modifications to the resolution included adding an official expiration date of December 31, 2020, changing the wording “in coordination with” to “in agreement with” as a way of clarifying the Board’s role in purchases, as well as limiting the purchasing powers to “health and safety items.” The full Oct. 28 SDUHSD Board of Trustees meeting can be viewed here. In response to questions raised during public comments as well as board members themselves, Dr. Haley clarified that the wording “emergency conditions” originates with the State of California and does not represent a recent change in the District’s status. “This purely has to do with our ability to keep purchasing certain equipment,” Haley said. “I want to make that very clear

of a “slower and safer” re-opening schedule. “We want our children back in the classroom as soon as is safely possible but we also don’t want to compromise academic integrity,” Bronstein said, fearing that an expedited return to on-campus learning would compromise the quality of students’ educations as well as the safety of faculty. To date, over 2,200 individuals have signed an online petition generated by “Concerned SDUHSD Parents” asking the SDUHSD Board of Trustees to adopt a slower, “more sensible” approach to reopening. According to Bron-
stein, signers of the petition are worried that a hasty return will cause further issues down the line with not just students’ health but also the retention of experienced faculty members. “We hope that the district is not putting teachers in the untenable decision of needing to choose between caring for their own families vs. teaching our children,” Bronstein said. “Currently, teachers are teaching from their safe, well-equipped home offices. We would like teachers to return to school when their classrooms have the necessary technology and PPE.”

In Arizona desert, sharing the Salt with wild horses hit the road e’louise ondash
e are paddling inflatable kayaks down Arizona’s Salt River in the Tonto National Forest, taking in the lush stands of cottonwoods and willows bordering both sides of the shallow water. It’s hard to believe that we are in the middle of the Sonoran Desert and only 45 minutes east of downtown Scottsdale. “The trees are often referred to as the cottonwood-willow gallery forest,” explains REI Co-Op (https: //destinations.rei. com / a r i z on a / pho e n i x)

rent, grazing on river grasses. Red-rock cliffs tower in the background, creating a real-life painting. I’d first heard of the wild horses just the day before and didn’t expect to actually see any on our two-hour paddle, but here they are. These beautiful animals of many colors don’t seem to be bothered in the slightest by humans cruising by in rubber boats. The horses continue grazing without even raising heads as we slide by. I struggle to get my cellphone out of my water-tight bag while Colby, a veteran river rafter who has taken visitors down the Salt River for 40 years, patiently waits as I take my shots. “There are about 300 horses in all,” he says, his continual narration making it obvious that the desert’s

human and natural history is part of his DNA. The story of these animals and why they remain protected on federal land is a complicated one that includes politics, optics, jurisdiction and coalitions. But the bottom line, says Colby, is that these horses are “an icon of the American West,” and therefore worthy of preservation. Close encounters occur most frequently from about October to May because of river management policies,” he adds. We had put our inflatable kayaks into the water just a few minutes earlier at the confluence of the Salt and Verde rivers. This REI adventure is ideal for the novice kayaker (me) and one that can be adopted to the realities of the current COVID-19 pandemic. REI guides maintain social distancing, masking and sanitizing throughout activities, including transport to and from the river. With all the restrictions that have come with this pandemic, people are clamoring now for outdoor activities, said REI Co-Op guide Steve Sproviero, a veteran outdoorsman and New Jersey transplant who led us on an early-morning hike the day before. We explored the McDowell Sonoran Preserve (www.mcdowellsonoran.org), more than 30,000 acres set aside by the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy and the City of Scottsdale to keep this piece of “lush” Sonoran Desert pristine. Sproviero shared his encyclopedia of desert information as we followed the Marcus Landslide Trail (4.2 miles round-trip). Every turn brought vast views of the valley below and fascinating rock formations created by wind, water and motion. Some of the huge boulders appeared to be barely balancing and looked as if they’d come tumbling down any second, which apparently they did a few million years ago. (Hence the name of the trail.) Even though it was only 9 a.m., the sun was intense and the air still, and we were feeling it. “People come out here and they think they are in shape,” Sproviero said. “Then they wonder why they’re feeling so tired, but they don’t realize that we’re at 2,600 feet.” Despite wearing sunscreen and a hat with a sizable brim, I left with a facial sunburn that lasted several days. It’s was a lesson in the power of this desert and its dual personality. It is at once a fascinating beauty and a dangerous place. Fortunately, it’s also vast and an ideal place to spend time until life returns to something resembling normal. For more information, visit Experience Scottsdale (w w w.ex per iencescot ts dale.com).

Escondido votes to reduce campaign contribution limits By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — After months of discussing drastically lowering the city’s campaign contribution limits, the Escondido City Council met on Wednesday, Oct. 21, and approved, 3-1, reducing campaign contribution limits for the mayor and council members. Of cities with limits, Escondido previously had one of the highest with parties able to donate up to $4,300 to a City Council or mayoral candidate. At last week’s meeting, the council voted to lower the limit for district-only council seat campaigns to $1,000 and reduce the limit for citywide races for mayor and city treasurer to $1,750. Councilman Mike Moraco was the only no vote. The council had previously discussed adopting a provision similar to that in San Marcos, where if someone donates to a candidate’s campaign, that candidate may not vote on the donor’s project for a year before and a year after the donation; however, the council agreed to revisit the issue once the new council is seated after the upcoming election. Laura Hunter, Chair of the Sierra Club NCG Conservation Committee, submitted a public comment at the council regarding the decision: “Sierra Club’s NCG’s Political Committee supports the reductions and campaign limits for mayor and council races. The limits are still quite high, but significantly lower than before so we support them. “However, we also request the council add limitations on those with financial interests before the city as part of this ordinance … we strongly support campaign dollar and time limitations for persons with decisions in front of the City Council “… As our city moves in a more positive and visionary direction, our decisions must be as clean as possible, meaning the public needs to have confidence in them.” Hunter added that the Sierra Club recently took issue with three Escondido council candidates, including Morasco, accepting campaign donations from Safari Highland LLC, proponents of the controversial Harvest Hills development, noting that an ordinance would be the first step in avoiding “conflicts” like this one. Morasco responded during the meeting by pointing out that different groups, parties, organizations and individuals will inevitably support “individuals who they think have the like-minded perspective and interest that they do.” He added that he has always been someone who supports “growth, development, business and housing.” The new law will go into effect after the current election and will be in place for the next general election in November 2022. In comparison, the City of San Diego sets contribu-

tion limits at $600 for council candidates and $1,150 for mayor/city attorney. Chula Vista has a $350 limit. Santee has a $700 limit, Vista is at $300, Encinitas and San Marcos are at $250, Solana Beach and Poway are at $100, and Lemon Grove has a $1,000 limit. Five cities in the county have set no local limits, defaulting to a recent state law that limits campaign contributions to $4,700. These cities are Carlsbad, El Cajon, Imperial Beach, National City and Oceanside. The council also approved permits to develop a 42-unit condominium at 2608 S. Escondido Boulevard and to demolish an adobe (formerly Hacienda de Vega restaurant) classified as a significant historic resource. A 2% inflationary adjustment to fees for public facilities, park development, traffic impact and drainage facilities was discussed and were to be voted on at the council’s Oct. 28 meeting.
DEAR FAMILY AND FRIENDS,
We need help for our daughter Sarah. As you may or may not know, she has struggled with kidney disease from her early teenage years. Over that time, despite a regimen of various (and sometimes onerous) drug therapies, her kidney function has been, off and on, in decline and recently has dropped to approximately 10% of normal. That is below the cutoff for Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5, also known as End Stage Renal Disease. Sarah needs a kidney transplant. She has been accepted into the transplant program at UC San Diego Medical Center and placed on the waiting list for a kidney from a deceased donor. The current wait period for a patient with Sarah’s blood type (O) is more than 9 years. The alternatives are dialysis or, optimally, a kidney transplanted from a living donor. The health screening process for living donors is extremely thorough with the health interest of the prospective donor paramount to the process. From within the core family we have been unable to field a viable direct donor. At present, Vicky is under consideration for a paired donation (an arrangement whereby her kidney would go to another
recipient whose donor would provide to Sarah) as her blood type and age preclude a direct donation to Sarah. However, a direct donation would be preferable to paired donation both as to timing and efficiency of the process. So, we are looking for a special gift from a special person who may feel motivated to become a living donor for Sarah. Obviously, this is a serious and significant request. We are not asking for any commitment or response to this message; rather, we are looking to acquaint you with the possibility of living donation, to convey where more information is available, and—of great importance—to ask you to help us get the word out by forwarding this to other people or groups who may be able to help Sarah. For more information about Sarah and the process, please visit https://kidneyforsarah.com/. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers, as well as your assistance in sharing this message. Sincerely, Dan & Vicky Dubina

business district. “I couldn’t be more thrilled and can’t wait for it to be finished,” said Mayor Catherine Blakespear. “It’s going to be amazing.” Additionally, the council voted unanimously to accept changes in State Law in regards to Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) and Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADU), as well as providing recommendations to staff on the City’s ADU program initiatives. Currently, the city offers incentives to homeowners interested in constructing either an ADU, an attached or detached residential dwelling unit on the same lot as an existing primary residence or JADU, an additional residential dwelling unit no larger than 500 square feet in area. The council discussed methods of increasing ADU production as a method of meeting low to moderate-income housing requirements, obtaining additional input from residents on the city’s ADU policies and streamlining the permitting process. Supporting additional financial incentives for

ADU’s, Councilmembers Tony Kranz and Joe Mosca insisted on any programs that contribute to the city’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA). “I want to make sure any projects the city participates in financially are indeed counting towards our RHNA obligation for
low and very low-income housing so we are not in the position of having to up-zone additional parcels,” Kranz said. Blakespear agreed, suggesting the city staff return with a recommendation on how to properly incentivize low-income housing while also still
encouraging the construction of moderate-income ADU’s. “(ADU’s) fundamentally give additional value to the landowner, not to a developer, and they are more easily absorbed into neighborhoods than any (other) type of the additional density (construc-
tion) we struggle with in our city,” Blakespear said. “These units are important and they become housing that is affordable.” Councilmember Hinze recommended the city seek general residential input saying, “the missing piece is input from our community,” further suggesting the
city ask residents, “what would incentivize you to build an ADU and why haven’t you done it yet?” Mosca agreed, suggesting the city both incentivize ADU construction as a means of increasing low-income housing as well as conducting further outreach with residents. Additionally, Kranz presented an update on his participation in the North County Transit District board meeting, as well as addressing residents’ concern over a rumored six-foot chain link fence planned along the rail corridor, which according to Kranz is untrue. In closing, Hinze and Mosca updated the council on the School District Liason Committee meeting discussing equality in schools, inviting representatives from local organizations including civil rights group Encinitas 4 Equality, MiraCosta College’s Associated Student Body President and local school board members. Mosca further complimented Hinze’s leadership in the meeting, hosting “tough conversations… and including other folks that truly walk in those shoes in our community,” and the city’s Safe Routes to School program.

Bressi Ranch’s Halloween blowout gets adjustment By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — It is perhaps the spookiest tradition in the past 15 years. Bressi Ranch has become one of the region’s biggest draws for Halloween and trick-or-treaters as the neighborhood blows out decorations, music and candy. Oh, and the candy, too. In a typical year, thousands of kids donned in their scariest, or more creative, costumes flood the streets leading to a logjam waiting to get in, said resident Bill Walsh. But the COVID-19 pandemic is bringing a more tepid approach this year with many of the usual residents opting out of decorating their homes. “Every year it’s gotten crazier and crazier,” Walsh said. “In years past,
I’d have to leave work early because if I left past 4 p.m., I couldn’t get into my neighborhood. It’s just fun and everyone is very festive.” Still, dozens of homes are not letting the pandemic take away their displays, although giving out candy is another story. Walsh said it all started about 15 years ago with one home starting a small, spooky pirate ship. Two years later, a neighbor joined in and several other homes came on board the following year. In a non-pandemic year, Pirate Alley also brings in a food truck and engages in a block party. Or as Walsh said of his neighborhood, “it’s Mardi Gras with kids.” Within a couple of years, an armada of
homes along Peppertree Way joined in on the pirate theme, giving birth to “Pirate Alley,” Walsh said. And the rest of the neighborhood joined in, with some going for skeleton surfers, “Star Wars,” “Ghostbusters,” clowns and even a frightening farmer’s market. “This year, we will see how it is with COVID and how many people come out,” Walsh said. “We’re not even sure if our governments or our mayor will want us to do it at all." Sometimes, the zombie craze of kid’s bull-rushing through the neighborhood for candy comes at a price. Homes have run out, requiring a mad dash to the grocery store for more. Walsh said he, along with most of his neighbors,
will go through hundreds of bags each year. It has become such a destination, he said, that the little kids will descend on the neighborhood by 4 p.m. on Halloween, with the older kids coming around dusk. And the trickor-treaters won’t slow down until sometime after 9 p.m., Walsh said. The early rush can cause delays of up to 30 minutes for people to enter the neighborhood due to the crowds and narrow roads in Bressi Ranch. The residents have also taken up a contest for best decorations, which was crowned by one of the city councilmembers last year. The festivities include incorporating music in some of the residences. “It’s the wild, wild West,” Walsh said.
REGION — A former La Jolla Country Day School teacher who had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student over the course of several months was sentenced today to probation and community service and was prohibited from teaching again in any capacity. Jonathan Sammartino, the 37-year-old son of U.S. District Judge Janis Sammartino, could have faced up to one year in local custody and sex offender registration following his guilty plea to a felony count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. He previously faced two other felony sex counts that could have had him facing prison time, but those counts were dismissed after he pleaded guilty in August. Deputy District Attorney Martin Doyle said the plea agreement was reached in part because the victim, identified only as “Jane Doe’’ in court proceedings, did not want the case to go to trial. She also declined to virtually attend this morning’s sentencing hearing. Doyle said the victim was content that the case is resolved and has “changed and healed’’ since her interactions with Sammartino, which occurred in 2016. “It’s her wish to move on with her life,’’ the prosecutor said. San Diego County Superior Court Judge Charles G. Rogers ordered the defendant to complete his 400 hours of community service at any nonprofit organization by next August. In declining to im-
pose sex offender registration, Rogers cited a U.S. Supreme Court case that found registration was most suited for those considered dangerous and likely to re-offend. The judge said though Sammartino’s conduct toward the victim could be considered predatory, due to their age difference and his abuse of a position of trust, “there is not an iota of evidence that this conduct was an expression of an underlying character trait on his part. I see no indication that this man is predatory or is likely to repeat this conduct with another person or is a danger to others.’’ Rogers also cited a bicycling accident Sammartino suffered about a year prior to the offenses, which the defendant and his attorney say caused a brain injury that inhibited his impulse control and ability to make reasonable judgments. The judge said he didn’t think the injury excused Sammartino, but said he believed it was a contributing factor to the offenses. Sammartino made a statement to the court, in which he said, “I am very sorry for everything that has happened and for the misery caused by my unfortunate involvement with Ms. Doe. I know that my behavior’s disrupted her life, my own life, and the community.’’ He said he was “not the same person’’ he was before the bicycling accident and was continuing to seek treatment for “my mental impairments that led to those behaviors.’’

NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CIRCULATE RECALL PETITION TO THE HONORABLE ESTHER SANCHEZ: Pursuant to Section 11020, California Elections Code, the undersigned registered qualified voters of the City of Oceanside, District 1, in the State of Catifornia, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of Councilmember in District 1, the City of Oceanside, Catifomia, and to demand election of a successor in that office. The grounds for the recall are as follows: • • • • • • • • • •
Esther Sanchez is not a good representative for We The People of Oceanside. She won’t work with her peers, holds grudges, and refuses to even communicate. For 20 years Esther has opposed affordable housing, public safety, business growth, and medical cannabis, but pretends to support the community. She gives lip service to our first responders but votes against urgent police and fire needs. Esther has done nothing to address our homeless crisis. Esther permanently campaigns for more years on Council to fatten her pension benefits and we foot the bill. Two decades in the same elected office is too long. Under Esther’s watch, emergency call times doubled those required for resident safety. She consistently opposes improving our first responder needs. Under Esther’s watch, Oceanside lost over 600 rent-controlled mobile home spaces, harming our seniors, veterans, and others of limited income. Under Esther’s 20-year council reign, a $210 million pension deficit was placed on the backs of taxpayers with no hope for future resolution. A State investigation of campaign finance violations is pending. Esther manipulated the voting district process to gerrymander results for her own political goals. 20 years and nothing to show for it. Time to go.

It is hereby given that a Public Hearing will be held on Thursday, the 19th day of November, 2020, at 6:00 p.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, by the Encinitas Planning Commission to discuss the following hearing item of the City of Encinitas: CASE NUMBER: PLCY-003713-2020 (ZA/LCPA – Density Bonus Amendments) APPLICANT: City of Encinitas; LOCATION: City-wide; PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This is a continuation of the Planning Commission hearing from October 15, 2020, which was continued to a date uncertain, and is now being re-noticed. The City of Encinitas proposes amendments to Chapter 30.16.020(C) (Density Bonus Regulations) of the Encinitas Municipal Code. A public hearing will be held to review and consider the draft Ordinance No. 2020-09, titled “An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Encinitas, California, Adopting Amendments to Chapter 30.16.020(C) (Density Bonus Regulations) of the Encinitas Municipal Code” to incorporate changes made in State Law and modifications requested by the Planning Commission, which include application requirements for projects requesting a density bonus and location of required affordable units within a housing development. The Commission will also consider incentives such as increased density to create affordable housing as an alternative to the density bonus provided for in Assembly Bill 2345 (AB 2345), which takes effect on January 1, 2020. Title 30 of the Municipal Code is a component of the Local Coastal Program (LCP); therefore, the LCP would also be amended as part of this application. ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: The proposed amendments to the City’s Municipal Code are exempt from environmental review pursuant to General Rule, Section 15061(b)(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines since there would be no possibility of a significant effect on the environment. The ordinance being considered specifies how the City will comply with and implement State density bonus law, and adoption is required pursuant to Government Code Section 65915(a). The bonuses, incentives, and waivers permitted by the ordinance are required by State law, and this ordinance does not permit any bonuses, incentives, or waivers greater than those required by State law. STAFF CONTACT: Nick Zornes, Planner IV: 760-633-2711 or firstname.lastname@example.org The Planning Commission will be making a recommendation on the item to the City Council. The City Council will consider the item at a separately noticed public hearing. This project constitutes an amendment to the Local Coastal Program (LCP). If the City Council approves the amendment, the proposed LCP amendment must be submitted to the California Coastal Commission for review and adoption. The LCP amendment will not become effective until after adoption by the California Coastal Commission. Staff initially released a Notice of Availability, for a six-week public review period (May 1, 2020 through June 12, 2020). Due to modifications to the ordinance, staff is releasing a new Notice of Availability, which opens a six-week public review period (October 30, 2020 through December 11, 2020) and is required to elapse prior to any final action being taken by the City Council on the LCP Amendment request. Under California Government Code Section 65009, if you challenge the nature of the proposed action in court, you may be limited to raising only the issues you or someone else raised regarding the matter described in this notice or written correspondence delivered to the City at or before the time and date of the determination. For further information, or to review the application prior to the hearing, please contact staff or contact the Development Services Department, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024 at (760) 6332710 or by email at email@example.com. 10/30/2020 CN 24921

f covering sports long enough, one encounters competitions that some wouldn’t expect. Anyone up for the Man Against Horse Race? “It’s pretty cool,” Encinitas’ Paula Besset said. “It’s a one-of-a-kind deal.” The cards Besset has been dealt weren’t all aces.

couple months after breast cancer surgery, my friends said I was crazy, but it was the horses that kept me strong. My body is cooperating, and I push, push, push until I drop at night.” The tug for this 50mile, multi-day event in Prescott, Arizona, was that the runners started first and then the horses would try to compromise their lead. But every 45 minutes, the horses were required to have a mandatory veterinary check. While making up ground, everyone makes sure the horses aren’t run into the ground. “Everyone just cares about the horses and that they are OK,” said Besset, who rode Bella. “Endurance horse racing is just a cool sport — it’s mostly done in the Middle East — because there is no prize purse, no money involved. “People just do it because of their pure passion for horses and the pleasure of doing something which is hard and is outside in nature.” Besset has always been cozy around the stables. She grew up as a self-described tomboy, jumping in the saddle at every chance. She would go on to train horses and got a hands-on opportunity with California Chrome about five years ago when he was dominating the thoroughbred circuit. But Besset, 55, drifted
from the ponies she loved, lured away by Cupid’s arrows. When her fiance told her she had to pick between him and her four-legged friends, she stood by her man. “I chose him over my dream career,” Besset said. “He’s now my ex-fiance.” So Besset, despite battling health issues, was eager to nestle into the saddle once again. Not only did she complete the Man Against Horse Race but she’s entered in another long ride in November in Arizona, the Lead Follow or Get Out of My Way event. There’s not much that can stop Besset and that’s the message of this column, as she longs to motivate others battling breast cancer and its aftermath. Besset is looking ahead to the Nov. 14 race and a 100-mile trek next year. “This is about survival and moving forward,” Besset said. “I’ve pushed through a lot of stuff that happened and I’ve tried to be strong and brave. “And really, I’m thriving, and I would like to inspire others. I had to reveal some personal things, like having breast cancer, to possibly get other women to push forward. But I’m proof that if you push through the worst of times that you can turn it around, too.” Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org, Follow him @jparis_sports
Budding 2-sport athlete adapting to new normal By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — The pandemic has impacted all facets of life including the hopes and dreams of budding athletes. From lost months of training and competition, there are now opportunities for athletes, especially younger ones, to get back into the swing of training and modified competition. One such athlete is Christian Howell, an eighth grader at TriCity Christian School in Vista, who is a budding track and swimming star. The 14-yearold said now months into the COVID-19 pandemic, his schedule is somewhat back to normal. While back in school, Howell and is able to train on a limited basis once again, while official competitions are canceled for the time being. But his mission is to get to the Olympics in both swimming and track, but the time off during a
crucial development stage is hardly holding him back. “It’s a minor setback, but as long as we have mock meets, I think it’s OK,” Howell said. “The times we get in our mock meets count for our official (rankings). His father, Patrick Howell, a Carlsbad author, dubbed his son “Shark Heart” several years ago as a testament to Christian Howell’s tenacity and self determination to train. Patrick Howell instilled a diligent work ethic — in the classroom and in athletics — in order to help his son succeed. Christian Howell runs middle distance and in the pool he excels in the backstroke, freestyle and butterfly with his Carlsbad-based club North Coast Aquatics and is near the top of his age group. His typical day is packed with school, homework and training, which usually ends
Howell, 14, is inspired by Cullen Jones, just the second black American swimmer to win Olymoic gold.

Delicious BBQ in a family friendly community meeting place Back in 1966, the Olson family started selling quality firewood out of their wood yard in Escondido. It was a trade that has been graciously passed down from generation to generation. Steve Olson — owner of Mike’s BBQ — carried on that legacy, working his fingers to the bone and manning avocado groves for over 30 years. In doing so, he sought to provide a strong foundation for his wife and three daughters while simultaneously passing down the same great values instilled in him by his parents. Today, Olson Firewood remains a thriving business, happily servicing San Diego County. In addition to deep-rooted respect for firewood, Steve also held a love for the bar and restaurant industry. In the 1980s, Steve and his wife opened a small bar in Ramona. Later, know-
Odd Files The Weirdo-American Community An unnamed 28-yearold man in search of a voluntary castration found himself drawn to a website offering such services, which led him to travel from Virginia to a cabin in the woods of Poteau, Oklahoma. There, on Oct. 12, Bob Lee Allen, 53, and Thomas Evans Gates, 42, allegedly relieved the victim of his testicles during a two-hour surgery, The Oklahoman reported. Allen told the victim that he has “a freezer of body parts” and that “he was going to consume the parts and laughed and said that he was a cannibal,” an affidavit said. The day following the operation, Allen took the victim to the hospital because he was bleeding badly, but cautioned him to say “he done it to himself.” The hospital contacted police, and investigators searched the property, finding suspected body parts in a deep freeze. Allen and Gates were charged with multiple felonies and misdemeanors, including conspiracy to commit unlicensed surgery and failure to bury the body parts. [The Oklahoman, 10/22/2020] Questionable Judgment Tynette Housley, 73, of Black Forest, Colorado, was cited by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials after her “pet” deer attacked and gored a neighbor who was out walking her dog on Oct. 16. The buck, now sporting two-pronged antlers, was taken in by Housley when it was just a few days old and raised as a pet. The victim tried to run first to another neighbor’s home, then to her own, but the buck repeatedly knocked her down and gored her. A CPW officer euthanized the deer and took it for testing for rabies and other diseases. “We can’t say it enough: Wild animals are not pets,” said Frank

With almost 100% accuracy. “A dog could easily save so, so, so many lives,” she told DW. A pilot program at the Helsinki Airport is having travelers wipe their wrists or neck with a cloth, which the trained dogs then sniff. They can identify the virus up to five days before any symptoms appear. People who test positive at the voluntary canine site are directed to the airport’s medical unit for confirmation. Hielm-Bjorkman said travelers have been eager to participate, waiting up to an hour in line. [DW, 10/21/2020] — On the Italian island of Sardinia, farmer Cristian Mallocci welcomed a litter of five dogs on Oct. 9, Fox News reported. Among them was a special pup — one with green fur, which Mallocci immediately named Pistachio. The other four dogs had white fur, like their mom. Green puppies are rare, but not unheard-of; scientists think it happens when the puppy makes contact with a green pigment in the womb. Pistachio’s color has faded since his birth, but he’ll keep his name, and Mallocci will keep him to help look after sheep on the farm.

The more often we say ‘Twifia,’ the heartier the name sounds!” [KidSpot.com, 10/15/2020] Over the Top — Superfan Luis Nostromo, 43, of Barcelona, Spain, has spent the last three years turning his apartment there into a stunning replica of the set of “Alien,” the 1979 Ridley Scott film starring Sigourney Weaver. His locations include the laboratory where the face-hugging monster attached to actor John Hurt was first examined; the spaceship’s corridors; and the pod that Weaver escapes in. Oddity Central reported that Nostromo hopes to finish his “Alien Museum” project by the end of the year and is already accepting visits from other fans. [Oddity Central, 10/16/2020] — In July, Taco Bell announced various changes to its menu, provoking uproar among some of its fans, Riverfront Times reported. But Bryant Hoban of O’Fallon, Missouri, saw an opportunity. When Hoban heard that the Potato Soft Taco was being sliced from the menu, he jumped in the car and headed to his nearest outlet, where he bought several of the items, then put them in his freezer. Then he listed three of them on Facebook Marketplace for $200. “These babies are rare!” he gushed. “Never been eaten!” It’s all part of Hoban’s scheme to start an “investment sandwich” business, he said. “You know, like the McRib — McDonald’s only offers it once a year, but the demand doesn’t go away.” Hoban has sold two of the tacos for $70 each: “I recouped

Essentially, the Olson family wanted a place that everyone is Escondido and surrounding areas could call their spot. During the early stages of opening the establishment, the Olsons suffered a loss in the family. Their nephew, Mike Schneider, passed away at the age of 16. “It was a difficult time,” Steve said, “but what came easy was the decision to keep his name alive.” Thus, Mike’s BBQ is the commitment to the community. The Olson family strives to work with as many local vendors as possible. They also highlight and support local breweries, contract with local tradesmen for building
maintenance, hire within the community, and support local sports leagues/teams and athletes. Not surprisingly, Mike’s BBQ is proud to use Olson Firewood straight from their very own wood yard. Cooked over a mesquite wood grill, their BBQ remains a step above the rest, both in quality and care. (Wood is available for purchase.) While the Olsons have a terrific story of tradition, hard work and commitment to community, they attribute their success to the wonderful customer and local community support. “Thank you for allowing us to serve you all these years,” Steve said. “We hope for many more to come.” Mike’s BBQ is at 1356 W.

In the first incident, Crook was seen loading “several blue and white striped bags” into a black SUV, according to Oddee.com. Lt. Antonio Granata said the witness confronted Crook, after which he fled on foot. The SUV had been reported stolen, and police found Crook in possession of methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia. He was arrested and released on bond. But that was just the first part of his day. Later, a lieutenant with the Fairfield Fire Department saw Crook walking around in a fire station and rummaging through firefighters’ property. He was arrested again and now has two bonds, each set at $25,000.

The Boston Globe reported on Oct. 20 that the ghoul is really Matthew Dunkle, 38, who has been known as the “bike-riding guy” in the area since 2015, when he went through a divorce and lost a grandparent. “I needed something special in my life,” Dunkle said. “I had a few smiles and people waved and people laughed and stuff. So that was kind of the beginning of it.” He actually donned the headless horseman costume in April, as the pandemic got going. “It just feels like we are kind of in the dark right now,” he said. “We are all just running around with our heads cut off.” [Boston Globe, 10/20/2020]

around 9 p.m., before getting to bed and grinding out the next day. Christian Howell set his sights as an Olympian thanks to Cullen Jones, was just the second Black swimmer in U.S. history to win an Olympic gold medal, as he was part of the 400-meter relay team in 2008. “I’m a very competitive swimmer and I’m ferocious in the water,” Howell said. COVID-19, though, is changing the way athletes train, forcing them to be more creative and use more at-home methodologies. However, the state has given the green light for athletes to resume some training schedules, schools, coaches, parents and students are taking the necessary precautions.The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released its interim guidelines, while
other professionals look at the situation in more granular level. Dr. Sharon Nachman, the chief of the division of pediatric infectious diseases at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital in New York, told Healthline that parents need to look to their municipalities and other adults first when determining whether to let kids play. Sports such as track and swimming, though, can easily implement social distancing practices and other methods. Christian Howell said his club only allows two swimmers per lane, and each must start at opposite ends of the pool, thus reducing contact. But the 14-year-old isn’t too worried about his future plans. He’s confident in his abilities and will adapt to the new times as the world waits for a vaccine, which would allow more traditional methods of athletic training to resume.

Chicano educator, activist pays it forward By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — Chicano Educator Dr. Xuan Santos, an associate professor at California State University at San Marcos (CSUSM), has been a mentor to many over the years, a blessing he attributes to his own mentors. He calls them “OGs,” a term he coined that does not, in fact, mean original gangsters, but “opportunity givers.” Santos, a first-generation immigrant from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, grew up in Boyle Heights, a neighborhood east of downtown Los Angeles that has long been heavily impacted by crime and poverty. “As a youngster, I didn’t know what my life was going to be like. I wanted to do exactly what my father and my mother did and just keep a blue collar job. I wanted to be a worker in a factory,” Santos said. “Then I came into contact with mentors that saw something in me that very few people did.”

He attended Cal State and mentors started tell-

ed to pay back my community through research and teaching,” Santos said. Santos also works with formerly incarcerated youth and gang-involved students. He serves as the faculty director of Project Rebound, a program that helps formerly incarcerated and system-impacted students to be accepted and retained at the university and to graduate. “We’re very disproportionately represented in academia, so to come from this highly stigmatized context and to thrive and become a role model as a professor, I always keep in mind all of the people that mentored me along the way,” Santos said. “I refer to them as OGs, opportunity givers, people that understand your plight, your struggle; people that understand that you are a person that has potential and your life has meaning.” Martin Leyva, the program coordinator of Project Rebound and a lecturer in the sociology department at CSUSM, has known Santos for roughly 11 years.

Preserve Encinitas’ Quality of Life Before it’s Too Late
REGION — The North County Transit District (NCTD) has ordered two additional diesel-electric Siemens Charger locomotives, it announced Oct. 26, which will complete the transit agency’s effort to convert its Coaster locomotive fleet to lower-emission vehicles when they go into service. A total of nine reduced-emission locomotives will make up NCTD’s fleet, which will allow it to nearly double the frequency of the Coaster service. That service runs 41 miles between the Oceanside Transit Center and the Santa Fe Depot in Downtown San Diego with eight total stops. The Coaster currently runs 11 times a day, Monday through Friday. “Submitting our final order for two additional locomotives cements our

commitment to enhancing our Coaster riders’ experience,” said Tony Kranz, NCTD board chair and Encinitas councilman. “In addition to increasing service frequencies, these new locomotives will provide a smoother and more reliable passenger experience, will significantly reduce diesel emissions and improve air quality and reduce noise pollution for residents and riders.” In 2018, NCTD initially ordered five Siemens Charger locomotives to replace aging vehicles. The first order of locomotives was delivered and is in the testing and commissioning phase. In 2019, NCTD’s Board of Directors approved the purchase of two additional Siemens Charger locomotives and two new trainsets — with each trainset including a locomotive as well as four bi-level coach cars
and a bi-level cab car from another manufacturer. According to NCTD, the new locomotives will provide an estimated 90% reduction in emissions compared to previous engines. They are Tier-4 certified by the EPA, and were recently emissions-verified by California Air Resources Board standards. “We are grateful to NCTD for their continued confidence in Siemens’ technology,” said Michael Cahill, president of Siemens Mobility Rolling Stock in North America. “These two additional locomotives represent an important milestone for us, bringing the total number of locomotives Siemens Mobility has sold in North America to 300.” According to an NCTD statement, this joint agreement lowers procurement costs.

suppose things will still go bump in the night on All Hallows Eve, even though we can’t celebrate it as usual. Yes, I am pouting just a little bit because Halloween is my favorite holiday. I have always loved dressing in costume. I get real joy seeing the young’ns from my neighborhood as they proudly show off their clever, adorable costumes. It is a cuteness overload that feeds my soul. I have been battling in my head about how to handle the holiday this year. I don’t want to encourage any unnecessary breathing on each other, but I suspect there may still be trick-or-treaters. I’m trying to figure how to give out candy safely without an overzealous third-grader snatching it all up at once or too many little hands touching it. I’m thinking individual bags, but we will see. After the death of my mother, in order to keep my dad entertained on Halloween, we began serving hot dogs. That turned into a delightful tradition. It connects me with my neighborhood, especially the parents who had no time to eat while getting kids ready to trick-ortreat. But, of course, there will be no hot dogs this year, nor, I suspect, many coming by to eat them. As it happens, my hot dogs were not the highlight in my ‘hood. We have many who decorate lavishly and gather in their driveways, anchored by my neighbors who have, for more than 30 years, decorated their garage, dressed in costume, invited friends and family, handed out big candy bars and served Hot Buttered Rum.

Time to take molded surfboards seriously
ook around your house and count the number of handmade items you own. If you’re anything like me, they are few, far between and among your most prized possessions. But most surfers don’t put their favorite handmade items in the house. They put them in the garage where they are lined up proudly like the works of art they are, or scattered on the floor, ready to spring into action on the next swell. Of course, I’m talking about custom, handmade surfboards. When I began surfing in the early ’60s anything but a handmade surfboard was called a popout and frowned upon by most real surfers. Surfing was booming and non-surfers were getting into the act. One popout that advertised itself as “Undingable” featured rubber bumpers to protect it from damage. The board was considered indestructible and various LA variety shows offered prizes for anyone who could bust it up with a sledgehammer. To my knowledge, nobody ever did. Regardless of their durability, those boards and the other bulky, brittle hunks of foam with fiberglass mat sealing them were the exclusive domain of the kook. These discount store surfboards were forever unpopular with hardcore surfers until fairly recently when Hawaiian-based Jamie O’Brien and a handful other chargers proved that it’s not what you ride, but how you ride it. Still, when the surf got real, real surfers picked up their hand-shaped boards and made their moves. That too changed when molded board makers began hiring top designers to build their models. The result is that machine-crafted surfboards now perform as well as hand-built ones. I tried one of the more popular machine-manufac-
tured surfboards recently after observing that the outline, foil, rail and rocker suited my specifications perfectly. After riding it twice I can report that the board handled better than expected. All things, including price, being roughly equal, I came away with a favorable impression of that board. Stability, paddling and turning could all be put in the plus column. In the minus column is my decades-long loyalty to the local board builders who have kept me afloat and stoked for over half a century. Also, the idea of one-size-fits-all conformity is disheartening in a sport that has forever prided itself on individuality. If molded surfboards prevail, and it seems they will, boards built strictly for the individual may one day be as rare as handmade Tiffany lampshades. Still, no matter how good machine-made surfboards become, the one place custom boards will always excel is that they, by definition, are made for your particular style of surfing. Your body type and approach to a wave is at least slightly different than anyone else’s. Taking the basic plan shape and adding a quarter inch of tail rocker, a half-inch to the outline, or increased thickness in the rail can only be achieved one surfboard at a time. Now, these seemingly minor modifications might not mean much to most surfers, but to others they are crucial. That’s the reason top competitive surfers generally have their boards built by a trusted shaper. In my opinion there there’s room for both handmade and machine-made surfboards. Weigh the options, get out there and ride.

News that he considers Santos his mentor, a status he doesn’t hand out lightly. “When I met him, he was one of the first Chicanos I actually saw myself in – the way he talks, the way he dresses, the way that he communicates,” Leyva said. “He was the first Chicano that I’d seen who was getting his Ph.D., and it was very inspiring to me.” Leyva said that Santos’ students and colleagues naturally tend to gravitate toward him because he’s real and isn’t afraid to be himself. “When you look at the history of academia, especially higher education, there’s not a lot of Black and Brown representation within our classrooms or even in our curriculums and books,” Leyva said.
“That’s the beautiful thing about having someone like Dr. Santos who comes from that Chicano perspective, as well as a very marginalized community like Boyle Heights.” Santos told The Coast News that he’s grateful to his parents, his family and his background for where he is today, and he hopes to pay it forward. “I see a future in every person I come into contact with because I was once in their shoes, I was once misguided, I was once afraid, and I didn’t feel like the world was open to me,” Santos said. “That’s why it’s important to create a network of faculty members that understands that struggle.” He added that being an educator has been a gift that has allowed him to connect with people from all walks of life.

Voting a spiritual act, too
on fire Susan Sullivan
o say 2020 has been an impactful year would be a gross u nderstatement. And there are still a couple of more months to go. Nov. 3 is probably going to hold the most impact. Why? Because that's Election Day in the United States. I've participated in each of them since given the right to vote. I always voted my conscience versus the official line set down by a political party. The current divide we are currently experiencing between those parties is disturbing but, at the same time, exciting because we see more participation in the voting process than ever before. When you stop to think about the history of the world, the United States is just a baby compared to other civilized countries. The American Revolutionary War was fought in the 1700s, and people laid down their lives for freedom from British rule in our new country. That's not that long ago when only 13 original states banded together to preserve the independence and sovereignty. And for all you millennials, that's what is significant about the 4th of July and the Declaration of Independence of 1776. I say that because I think we have lost sight in many ways of the value of our freedom here in the United States and what it took to get here. I think of a comedian who went down the Oceanside pier and asked kids what the Fourth of July meant and why we celebrated it in America. Google that. It isn't reassuring. The Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution came in 1870 and prohibited the federal government and each state from denying citizens the right to vote based on that citizen's race, color, or previous servitude condition — mean-
ing slavery. We’ve heard a lot about this lately. And what about what it took for women to be given the right to vote? It took nearly 100 years — decades of organized protests — to win that right through a women's suffrage movement that began before the Civil War. It wasn't until 1920 that the Nineteenth Amendment allowed women to vote. So if you start to think that people laid down their lives and went to jail during protests, that what they were fighting for must have had some level of importance. Vital importance. It's a right and a privilege; it represents liberty. Many religious and spiritual people will decline or reject the vote and any politics because they think it's all in God's hands or being spiritual; they are not of this world, or their voice won't make a difference. That in itself is freedom because of the sacrifices made to have the right to vote. But what I'm suggesting is making the freedom to vote a spiritual practice. Can spirituality and politics co-exist? The Pledge of Allegiance reads in part: “… one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” The definition of indivisible is unable to be divided or separated. Hmmm. Under God ... well, there's that. And liberty and justice for all is why we vote. To maintain it. To make sure it really is for all. That those who fought for the right to claim this way of living, this right to pursue life, liberty, and happiness as God-given, was
not in vain. So please get out and vote. Vote your conscience. Not just your conscience; your soul's conscience. This time it is beyond political party. Ensure the candidates and propositions line up with your core values and how you want to live in this world. How you want to see the world for future generations. Envision that it is possible to live as One, United, Indivisible, Soul on Fire ambassadors for God, the country, the world, the planet and the future. Your vote matters spiritually as well as politically.

Food &Wine Cakebread dinners sell out at Seasalt; Cass Winery wins again taste of wine frank mangio
al Ercolano hosted two sold-out nights of Cakebread Cellars Wine Dinners this past week at Seasalt Seafood Bistro in Del Mar as part of his 2020 Wine Dinner series. Over a delicious fivecourse dinner paired with Cakebread wine, guests learned about Cakebread’s history and wines from Young’s Market’s John Parker, who narrated the wine dinner event. Like many wineries and vineyards, Cakebread Cellars has a unique story that guests were able to learn about over dinner. By trade, Jack Cakebread was a photographer. In 1972, when doing a photo for Nathan Chroman’s “Treasury of American Wines,” Jack and Dolores Cakebread fell in love with Sturdivant Ranch in Rutherford. The Cakebreads casually offered to buy the 22-acre Napa County ranch. By the time they got home to Oakland after the photo shoot, the phone rang and the Sturdivants took them up on the

offer. Cakebread celebrated their first vintage in 1974, a Chardonnay with only 157 cases sold. Fast forward 46 years later, the Cakebreads added to their family’s estate vineyard collection throughout Napa Valley and Anderson Valley with a total of 1,600 acres across 15 vineyards, including 200 acres on Howell Mountain, where they created Dancing Bear Ranch for their top-end 95-point Robert Parker-rated Cab. A total of 600 acres
are currently planted across the collection. Now on to dinner. Guests enjoyed Chef Hilario minibites with 2019 Sauvignon Blanc with citrus notes. The 1% Semillon added a subtle minerality. The second course paired 2018 Mendocino County Pinot Noir with wafer thin Wagyu Carpaccio accented with scallions and chives. The 100% pinot featured black cherry and plum on the palate complementing the Wagyu beef. Third up was Wild Ravioli filled with short rib and
garnished with wild porcini mushroom paired with 2017 Merlot (85%) with Cabernet Sauvignon (9%), Syrah (4%) and Petite Verdot (2%) accents. The 17-month 55% new French oak maturation produced blackberry and black cherry with smooth tannins and bright acidity perfectly complementing the brown gravy. The fourth course featured ribeye with chimichurri sauce, tricolor fingerling potatoes, and French beans served with the 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sau-
vignon (84%) with splashes of Merlot (9%), Petite Verdot (4%), and Cabernet Franc (4%). The blackberry, boysenberry, and cocoa on the nose with dark fruit, smooth tannins and acidity was a perfect choice to pair with the ribeye and bread pudding dessert. Both this Cab and the Pinot Noir benefit from lots harvested, fermented and matured separately, then the components are combined and further aged. More info at cakebread.com. Next up in the Ercolano Wine Series is Chateau Montelena, Thursday-Friday, Nov. 19-20. $75 person at West End, RSVP at 858-2595878. The series ends with a Royal Night of Schramsberg complex handcrafted sparkling wines along with Davies Vineyards at Seasalt on Wednesday-Thursday, Dec. 16-17. $95 per person. RSVP at 858-755-7100. All wine dinners start at 6 p.m. Also, Ercolano’s new Italan restaurant in Carmel Valley, Flora Bar & Kitchen, with “modern farm to table Italian cuisine,” is now open. Guests will enjoy cheeses, breads and meats from local food artisans and fresh ingredients from local sources. Details at florabarandkitchen.com. — Story by Tech Director/Writer Rico Cassoni
CASS Winery named 2020 Winery of the Year
CASS Winery and Vineyard earned its third Winery of the Year award from the 18th annual Central Coast Wine Competition (CCWC). Previous winners for CASS were 2015 and 2018, making it the first time a winery has won this award three times, all under the supervision of 34-year-old chief winemaker Sterling Kragten. This year’s competition included 503 wines from 86 wineries in 10 counties, from Alameda to Ventura. All 18 wines submitted by Cass medaled. Specializing in Rhone Valley French wines, Cass collected 3 Best of Class, 4 double Golds, 7 Golds, and 7 Silvers that produced the point average to win the overall honor of Winery of the Year. “It’s a big honor, there are lots of great wines in Paso Robles,” said owner Steve Cass. “I love the fact that the more obscure varietals (like Rhone reds and whites) are gathering so much attention.” Visit casswines.com.

This Halloween, get to know the Pumking seasonal beer The obsession with Pumpkin Spice is a cultural phenomenon. I blame the internet, and Starbucks.
Cheers! North County
’ve never been a Halloween guy. I didn’t trick-or-treat as a kid. I don’t like scary movies. Carving pumpkins doesn’t make sense to me, and as a bartender, there was nothing worse than trying to check the I.D. of a dozen adult-ish patrons dressed up with masks or faces painted like whatever superhero villain was trendy that year. That is until I discovered the Pumking. The Pumking is a superhero of seasonal beers, an imperial ale brewed at Southern Tier in the weird little southwestern corner of New York state that should be part of Pennsylvania. The beer tastes like pumpkin pie, graham cracker, vanilla, cinnamon, Thanksgiving and Christmas all rolled up into one. It is released every year just before Halloween. I don’t know if Phil DeMink, founder of Southern Tier, was the first to think, “You know what this beer needs? Some winter squash,” but I wouldn’t be surprised. Mixing pumpkin, or any vegetable, into a beer takes a little bit of guts and a little bit of crazy. Pumpkin beers also divide the drinkers. A quick social media polling revealed a 50/50 split on whether or not beer drinkers liked and drank them. I reached out to some local brewers to get a professional opinion.

Carlsbad breweries shine at Great American Beer Festival By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — It’s bottoms up for a pair of local breweries. Pizza Port and Burgeon Brewery are in hops heaven after earning gold and silver medals, respectively, for their local crafts during the virtual Great American Beer Festival this month. Typically, the event sees tens of thousands of beer enthusiasts converge in Denver as hundreds of breweries submit thousands of beers for the competition, but the COVID-19 pandemic eliminated the in-person portion of the festival. Both, though, entered the International Pale Ale division with Pizza Port claiming gold for its Locals Only brew, while Burgeon nabbed silver for its Carlsbad Crush pale ale. This is Pizza Port’s first gold in many years, and the first for Burgeon since it opened nearly four years ago. Pizza Port’s Ocean Beach location also won sil-
ver for its Guillaume in the session or non-alcohol beer division. “We were super stoked,” Pizza Port head brewer Mike Aubuchon said upon hearing the results. “Two breweries from Carlsbad, that’s pretty awesome.” The IPA division required hops from the southern hemisphere (a requirement for the category), said Pizza Port head brewer Mike Aubuchon. Along with assistant brewer Jerome Sotelo, the duo used a number of hops from New Zealand in a citrus mosaic style, creating a West Coast IPA with bright and clear color with a citrus flavor, Aubuchon said. He said winning gold is a highlight of his career and just adds to the reputation for Pizza Port on its quality of brews. Aubuchon said it was a tough category with 87 entries with mostly West Coast beers. “It’s been a rough year and we were shut down for

four months,” he added. “It’s good for morale and good for the crew.” Anthony Tallman, Burgeon Brewery’s head brewer and co-founder, along with Casey Wollbrinck and Dustin Hendrick, also used the mosaic style with hops from Australia for Carlsbad Crush. Tallman said he was floored when he heard the news, saying the excitement for him, Aubuchon and Pizza Port was overwhelming, as a gold medal at the GABF is the mountaintop for American brewers. Aubuchon also expressed appreciation and excitement for Tallman and the Burgeon team. Likewise, Tallman said it made the silver medal even more amazing knowing his friend on the other side took home gold. Still, his teams brew fit more in the IPA division than pale ale. “Where’s your beer going to fit best? You got to take a systematic approach to it,” he added. “It’s super light bodied, light in color. The big things were passion fruit, tropical fruit and stone fruit as kind of the main hop characteristics from a beer BURGEON BREWERY won a silver medal for its Carlsbad Crush pale ale at the Great Amerin that category.

Gilles, Francois together again at Le Citron in Oceanside lick the plate david boylan
say that as if all you readers should know who Gilles and Francois are by first name only. Excuse my assumption that you were all around Leucadia 10-15 years ago when they dominated the local restaurant, bar and live music scene. I am officially referring to Gilles Knafo and Francois Patanchon, with Gilles running Calypso and Francois at the helm of Le Papagayo. It was a fabulous and, dare I say, a more simple time in Leucadia, with fewer options, more locals and a party atmosphere with live music seven nights a week at both joints, which were a refreshing walk on Coast Highway from each other. One of the musical highlights of my life was catching Jack Tempchin, the local singer-songwriter who wrote several hits for the Eagles including the quintessential “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” at Calypso at his standing weekly gig. That song was basically the feeling that represented Leucadia for me at the time and always a treat to hear live. That said, change is one of the constants in the restaurant business, and Calypso is now Priority Public House and Le Papagayo is still going under new ownership. Gilles headed to Mexico to open a Calypso outpost there and Francois opened a couple of restaurants in San Diego. Enough dwelling on the

past, though. This is about new beginnings and capturing a slice of that magic these two dynamic restaurateurs had in Leucadia in Oceanside, the new frontier for restaurants, at a killer joint called Le Citron. A headline I was toying with was “Calypso and Papagayo had a baby and it’s called Le Citron” as that is what immediately came to mind when I walked into the colorful house-like building on Coast Highway that they have made their own. But alas, I was not quite sure how that would have
been interpreted. Gave me a good laugh, though, so I had to tuck it somewhere into this column. Prior to Le Citron, it was Saint Tropez and before that Hill Street Café and the large outdoor seating area and open-air interior make it perfect for today’s dining restrictions. The space has a Pannikin feel to me and local artist Brian Banish, whose paintings hung in Calypso and Le Papagayo, has his colorful music and surfthemed paintings on display at Le Citron as well. The menu is a fun mix
of Leucadia classics from Gilles and Francois, including the Escargot de Bourgogne, Rock Shrimp Ceviche and Calypso Brie en Croute. I went with my favorite, the Calypso Napoleon, which is a healthy and delicious stack of Ahi Tuna, avocado, papaya, masaco and dynamite. I could start every meal with this dish as it’s so tasty, light and just gets you primed for the next course. The Crispy Calamari Steak was nice as well with macadamia nuts and sweet and sour sauce. Next time back I’m go-
ing to revisit the Calypso Black Mussels with white wine, shallots and tomatoes, and the Le Papagayo version of that is a light coconut curry and tomato base. Both perfect for mopping up that delicious broth with your table bread. The dish I was so stoked to have once again, complete with the table side fillet presentation, was Henri’s Poisson au Sel or rock salt crusted and baked whole sea bass that Gilles dad Henri filleted and served back in the day at Calypso, complete with his fisherman’s cap and French accent.
Tiger dies of injuries at Alpine animal rescue facility By City News Service
ALPINE — A 7-year old tiger at Alpine’s Lions Tigers & Bears animal rescue facility died of injuries inflicted by a fellow tiger, it was announced Oct. 27. Maverick suffered fatal injuries after he and the other tiger — Moka — were accidentally allowed to come into contact with one another Monday. The animals were living in separate enclosures, according to Lions Tigers & Bears founder Bobbi Brink, who said no staff or visitors were harmed. The staff veterinarian assessed both animals afterward. Moka has scratches, but no serious injuries. “This was a human error, and one we’re so deeply heartbroken about,” Brink said. “When caring for a 400-plus-pound apex predator, layered safety measures must be established, and this is exactly what we’ve implemented at our accredited sanctuary since our founding.
“Unfortunately, one of our safety measures was mistakenly missed, and because these magnificent, massive animals are wild, their reactions to their surroundings — especially new situations — are unpredictable.” According to Brink, the nonprofit organization regularly conducts staff safety trainings, including one on emergency protocols last weekend. She said the protocols will be reviewed extensively this week. Maverick was rescued on April 20, 2014, at 9 months old. He was born in captivity and purchased illegally by someone who did not have the proper licensing to own an exotic animal. California Fish & Wildlife personnel seized Maverick and reached out to Lions Tigers & Bears to provide him with a home. “There is an inherent risk when keeping apex predators in captivity, and we would like nothing more than to see an end to this,
but until then, and as long as our sanctuary is needed, we will continue to be there for these animals in need,” Brink said. “Mav-
erick, we will miss your friendly chuffs and curious, fun-loving spirit. Rest easy our sweet boy, run free, and keep on swimming.”
It was a special treat and special every time it was served. This time Francois did the honors, complete with the French accent and perfect presentation. It was fabulous as always. Gilles is French Moroccan and that is evident in the Moroccan Chicken Tagine that is a slow-roasted half free-range chicken with almonds, raisins, figs and saffron ginger sauce. The Calypso Filet Mignon is back along with Seared Sushi Grade Tuna with pickled tomatoes and Basmati rice. Backing up a bit the tapas and appetizers that include the Lobster Bisque, Melon, Watermelon and Mint Gazpacho I’ve had in the past and remember them fondly. I’ve not been for breakfast or lunch but the space is so conducive to both I’m looking forward to it. Live music has always played a key part of the experience for these guys and they have it happening again every Thursday – Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. Oceanside is the perfect location for Gilles and Francois to continue their restaurant collaboration and Le Citron is a very nice vehicle for that. I’m going back. Find them at 524 S. Coast Highway 101, Oceanside or 760-696-3737 and w w w.lecit ronocea nside. com.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Deciding to work out that pesky problem (even though you might have been bored, bored, bored with it) should be paying off right about now. Expect to hear some very welcome news very soon. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Unexpected news might cause you to rethink a previous conclusion. Don’t be bullheaded and try to bluff it out. Make the needed change, and then take a bow for your objectivity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Money matters should be considered as you continue to work out your holiday plans. This is a good time to scout out discounts before demand for them outstrips their availability. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A calm period early in the week helps you complete most, if not all, of your unfinished tasks. A new project appears by midweek, and this one could carry some big career potential. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Positive results from recent ventures continue to pump up those self-esteem levels, making you Fabulous Felines feel you can tackle any challenge anyone wants to throw at you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Family and friends might feel neglected because of your almost total focus on a project. Try to rework your schedule so you can have time for both your loved ones and your work.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Don’t be surprised if you suddenly hear from someone from your past who wants to contact you about the possibility of renewing a long-dormant (if not dead) relationship. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) This is a good time to check over what went right and what went wrong with recent efforts. This can provide valuable lessons for projects that will be coming up soon. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Dealing with people who feel they’re always right about everything might be a problem for some. But the savvy Archer should be able to deflate their oversize egos. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This week favors a balance between the demands of your work and your need for fun timeouts. Taking breaks helps restore and keep your energy levels high. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) There could be an occasional setback in what you’re working on. But look at them as lessons on how to do better as you move along. More supporters turn up to cheer you on. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Although a more positive aspect influences this week’s course, you still need to be sure that those who will work with you have no reason to work against you. Good luck. BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in keeping your promises. It’s not always easy to do, but somehow you do it. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
